What specific issues would you all like to talk to your nieghbors about?
Around here the Snelling re-do and soccer stadium will be the big topics of discussion, I'm betting. I need to talk to some people about Selby/Fairview, permit parking on Hague/Saratoga, and the Marshall/Snelling corner redevelopment Starbucks thing.

The 11 was the biggest problem during the detour. I think you meant your winky as sarcasm, so yeah. Third ave was backed up past Stevens square for two weeks and buses were very literally taking an hour to get downtown from lake.

^I've seen this on other buses as well recently. It's really time for transit lanes during peak hours.

Yep. Though to nuance it a bit, it's actually quite a bit faster now off-peak; Nicollet Mall is the slowest part of the route when it's not snarled by congestion.

It's a pretty narrow ROW--60', and it's on the near-term bike plan. I don't think you could do much better than this: (Even that would entail the loss of all street parking, which I suspect the neighborhood association would oppose, and those are pretty narrow lane widths.)

But I don't disagree in principle.
